just like they don't want to go against rush limbaugh. on one hand they are saying the democrats are making an issue of it, on the other hand, you have a legitimate birther people who, i think are crazy, but not one single republican member willing to say, you know what? this is ridiculous and we need to move on. you can't really have it both ways. >> john boehner said as much two days ago, but the near fact that karen thinks we should be talking about this -- >> i don't think we should be talking about it. you are more concerned about getting licks against the president rather than solving problems. chris wanted to talk about it. >> just a minute, todd. why do you think roy blunt is out there pushing this issue? we can show it again if you would like, but he wants to see the president's birth certificate. he was up there on the platform during inaugural day. why didn't he come down to ask the guy about to be sworn in to see his birth certificate. why is he doing this now? >> i have no answer. the national review, which is hardly a left wing publication, just wrote an entire editoria
